ECE 124d/256c Lab 5: Power Bypass Design One week. In this lab, it is you against the power coupled noise. You have a set of capacitors to use on the package and you need to find a bypass solution that keeps the power noise below 10% on each power rail over the relevant time period. Your capacitors can be selected from the follow- ing varieties. Note that for the smaller types, the cost is solely dependent on the packaging option, as is the inductance. You also have the option of adding on-chip bypass area capacitance. Because of package pad issues, you get 70nF on chip for free, but adding additional on-chip bypass adds to the chip area and thus reduces the number of die you get from a wafer. For this chip, an additional 10nF uses 5mm 2 , adding to the 65mm 2 minimum. In the minimum size, you get 654 die per $1,500 wafer. Adding to the area, you get proportionally fewer chips -- but the wafer cost is fixed so your price per chip goes up. This chip is packaged in an epoxy package with a cost of $4 each in large quan- tity. Finally, you pay $0.05 per device for place assembly charges on the package. Your goal is to

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
